The Silver Metallic is new...
Martha Stewart's Living Metallic Polished Silver 343 560
(comes in 10oz containers at LOWES and some Home Depot s for $6 each)
you'll need 3 containers... subtotal = $18
(the main reason for this change are three-fold... cost, reflectivity, and viscosity... as it is much easier to measure and mix than the Liquitex silver tubes)
The Water Based Polyurethane is also new...
Rustoleum's Ultimate Polyurethane Matte Finish (water based)
(Lowes is main source, Home Depot and Menard's haven't picked it up yet)
Qt = $12
(obviously the main reason for this change is the ability go from a satin to a matte finish and further eliminate possibility of sheen)
As stated previously, the changes above do not mean the old items are not viable. Either may be used separately with the remaining original ingredients.
However, the use of "BOTH" will constitute a improvement, and as such are worth sourcing is such is possible.
